YOU’VE FOUND THE PLACE!

It’s great fun to see the faces of visitors when our Barbershop Quartet of former presidents (life-size) begin singing or the miniature circus parade starts up, or the orchestrion begins filling the room with old fashioned music.

Children especially like to pull the ropes to make the whistles blow and push the button to watch the Lionel trains chug along.
